Long before your pipe lining project begins, we are hard at work taking care of the important but unseen details that are essential to ensuring your project goes smoothly.
To prepare for your pipe lining project, we:
Perform a follow-up site visit to do a detailed evaluation, including a camera/video inspection and analysis
Fully review the process with you, the homeowner
Secure all necessary materials
Arrange for all required city permits and inspections
Plan for parking, access to work area, and debris removal
Protect driveway, walks, walls, and floors from damage
Getting Ready to Complete the Pipe Lining Project
On the day of your pipe lining service, we will have to complete several steps to prepare the site before we can access your sewer line.
To get your sewer ready for pipe lining, we:
Clean the line using a cable machine or high pressure water jet
Record a detailed digital video inspection
Confirm the measurements of your lateral at several key points using the camera cable
Calculate, measure, and prepare all resin volumes and ratios
Preparing the Pipe Liner
Once those steps are complete, we can begin the pipe lining process.
To complete the pipe lining sewer repair, we:
Cut the tubular pipe liner to size and fill it with epoxy resin.
Load the pipe liner into a high pressure inversion unit and insert it through a single access point
Insert a steam bladder and pressurize it to form, heat and cure the new “pipe in a pipe.”
Remove the bladder and inspect and document the new liner for your records and peace of mind.
When we’re done with your pipe lining sewer repair, the entire work area is cleaned and left as it was found. You can resume your life without the worry of an unexpected, untimely, messy and expensive backup.
You should have your sewer line cleaned on an annual basis—especially if you live in an older neighborhood. It’s the best way to make sure tree roots haven’t cracked into the line and that there are no other obstructions.
